Occidental Institute Research Foundation functions
as an information and technology bridge linking
top German practitioners and suppliers involved
in aspects of German Biological Medicine with
progressive English-speaking practitioners around
“Biological Medicine” - a phrase coined by Occidental Institute during the early 1980’s - was intended to be a general and inclusive term that incorporated many non-allopathic or natural diagnostic and therapeutic methods. There is no single product, personality, method or approach within Biological Medicine that will allow you to help all of your patients, with all of their health challenges, all of the time. It is for this reason that we see a constantly changing and developing range of methods coming available to practitioners worldwide.
[*1944 – †2004]
By providing newsletters, exclusive books and publications, educational materials, hands-on seminars and workshops, video/DVD training, instrumentation recommendations and yearly clinic and lecture tours to Germany, OIRF promotes the growth of German Biological Medicine throughout North America, and in many other English speaking countries.
OIRF is a nonprofit society supported solely by our internal fund raising activities. As an independent research organization
we are constantly seeking and evaluating new
approaches to health care for our affiliated colleagues and supporters.
Few Words About Occidental Institute
By Carolyn L. Winsor-Sturm, Chairman of the
Board and C.E.O.
Institute is an international nonprofit
society for practitioners of biological medicine.
The Institute itself has been in continuous operation
since 1972. Since 1980, we have specialized in
German biological medicine, which is far ahead of
the United States and Canada from the standpoint of
its acceptance, utilization, established remedies,
and superior instrumentation. Since then, we have
become the most influential organization in North
America and many other English speaking countries,
serving Biological Medicine practitioners worldwide.
We're not some Johnny-come-lately group just
climbing onto the German biological medicine bandwagon.
We have already trained hundreds of practitioners
from diverse English speaking countries, in the
most effective German diagnostic and therapeutic methods.
Essentially, we are an information and technology
bridge linking clinically proven German advancements
with English-speaking practitioners. However, since we do
not simply endorse any particular German approach or product
line, but rather cover all of
the most effective modalities,
you can rely on us for truly unbiased advice.
Besides facilitating purchase of instrumentation and training
on it, we offer comprehensive printed or recorded programs,
publications covering acupuncture, homeopathy
and a wide range of related topics, newsletters, yearly
clinic and lecture Tours to Germany, seminars by top experts
from Germany and North America, and - most importantly-
affiliation with fellow practitioners.
Occidental Institute Research Foundation is a non-profit research organization. The instrumentation recommendations of this organization are based on thorough testing to determine efficacy, quality, pricing, availability, service and support. All instrumentation is sold at or below German factory (export) prices to assist our Affiliates in obtaining the best product for their needs at the best possible price. Longtime OIRF supporters consider us as the "Consumer Reports" of German Biological Medicine. Training and educational materials on all currently recommended instrumentation are available through OIRF.
As a non-profit research organization, we are here to educate and inform our "members" / supporters, and to make instrumentation recommendations based on our years of research. Then, as a fund raising activity, we can assist you with a purchase that will work best in your practice for the most reasonable price.
Objective Evaluation Methods:
- OxiMed: Quick easy measureing of oxidative stress based on the principles of
BEV/BE-T-A according to Prof. L.C. Vincent. Assessment of the redox potential according to the actual oxidative situation in the blood.
- VNS Diagnosis 3000 is the
ideal complement to the Oxygen Ion 3000 by Dr. Ivan Engler. It measures the capacity and the resistance between both
gold electrodes and forms an optic display of the vegetative
situation in the form of an LED-diagram.
Subjective (Point Measurement)
- German Electro-Acupuncture Diagnostics: Electro-Acupuncture
according to Dr. Rheinhold Voll (E.A.V.); and the American variation
Electro-Dermal Screening (EDS).
- The VEGATEST-Type Method: For
rapid instrument assisted patient and substance evaluation,
as well as optimal non-invasive allergy testing.
- Both methods available within the diagnostic modules on MORA Nova, M3 and M5
Biological Therapy Methods:
- Bio-Photon Light Therapy: German research established
that cells communicate on the basis of photons, and one
can now readily influence that intra- and intercellular
biophoton emission for therapeutic purposes. Clinical therapeutic device from Medical Electronics.
- Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy, based on the
work of Dr. Wolfgang Ludwig. A unique practice system
that can be used for direct therapy and "remedy"
duplication. Everything is steered by a new communication
system via Laptop from Advanced Medical Systems (AMS).
- MORA-Color Therapy: Basic Bio-Resonance
Therapy and Digitalized color frequencies with high amplification from Med-Tronik.
- MORA-Color Therapy According to Dr. Sir Zenon Gruba.
general and pain therapy from Med-Tronik.
- The ONDAMED technology is a focused pulsed electromagnetic field therapeutic device for tissue stimulation. Its unique Biofeedback method allows practitioners to obtain a diagnostic perspective as to the root cause of chronic disease and symptoms while personalizing treatment to each patient.
- Inhaled Ionized Oxygen Therapy: Oxygen
Ion 3000 by Dr. Ivan Engler. Positively or negatively ionized
oxygen delivered directly, plus ionization of drinking
water and aerosol administration of otherwise injected
- With an innovative new device for ultraviolet blood irradiation three key wavelengths are delivered during treatment which yield a comprehensive clinical response. Each wavelength strategically activates a specific biochemical pathway and when delivered concurrently the activated pathways are attributed to the therapeutic power of this device. Note that no blood is withdrawn from the patient for processing.
BioResonance Therapy Methods:
- BioResonance Therapy: Superb healing using
the patient's own bio-information. Electronically invert filtered-out
pathological frequencies and deliver them back to the
patient amplified for cancellation purposes;
also use patient's secretions and excretions therapeutically;
electronically transfer remedy information; and much more.
True BioResonance Therapy based on the work and research of Dr. Franz Morell and Mr. Erich Rasche.
